I'm using model builder and trying to copy a SDE database to a file geodatabase.  The SDE db has several feature datasets, feature classes, relationship classes and tables.  Each feature dataset within the db has feature classes, tables, & relationship classes.  I can�??t seem to find an easy way to copy everything from SDE to my personal DB.  This is a process that is going to be repeated weekly which is why I�??m creating a model.  I currently have a model that will do this but it�??s huge and cumbersome since I have to create each feature dataset, then copy each feature class, table & relation ship class, etc.  I was wondering how others are doing this.  I've tried the basic "copy" geoprocessing tool but it gives me errors when I do.  I've attached a pdf of my model so you can view what I've done.
